Tech Basketball Coach Honored By Lawmakers

By  | 

AUSTIN -- Texas Tech basketball Coach Bob Knight has been honored today at the state Capitol -- and he urged legislators to do all they can for education.

Knight says there's something very, very special about Texas,
what he calls "the independence that Texas people have about
themselves, about their state, their loyalty."

Knight says you can have unbelievable pride in what your state
does, and yet a great responsibility.

Knight asked the Senate to keep education in mind for young
people, and said legislators should remember the goal of
"well-educated big Texans."
